S&M Clubhouse Cafe London Reviews
Great British Food Jul 06, 2011
S&M Clubhouse café, despite sounding like something you wouldn’t write about on a family friendly website, is actually a very cute café in the Spitalfields area of London. It serves traditional British food, like sausage and mash and fish and chips, and does so very well. The prices are good, too – mid week, sausage and mash is available for £5, and my dinner (sausage and mash, rhubarb crumble, a small beer and a mug of tea) came to something very reasonable like £12.
The décor is aiming towards traditional café, with chequered table cloths, and vintage adverts for Birds Custard and Jelly on the wall. Of course, traditional cafes are less pink, and do not as a rule have pin ups on the toilet doors, but the décor is very nice and laid back, and it is a pleasant place to sit. The music policy is excellent too, playing classics, mostly from the 1960s. Sitting drinking tea with the windows wide open for the sunshine, listening to Louie Louie and Dusty Springfield, is very nearly an ideal evening for me. And no one minded that I stayed for about an hour and a half.
The service was good, too, which is all too rare in places so quirky. All in all, this is a really nice place to eat. It is also in the Spitalfields market area, which is close to Liverpool Street Station but a world away from the financial City, and a lovely place to spend an hour or two. From a travel point of view, this is possibly the easiest really good place to eat before you catch the Stansted Express from Liverpool Street, and so worth knowing about.
